Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 80 | Slider: 55 | Changeup: 40 | Control: 40 | Overall: 50

The Orioles signed Scott for more than $400,000 above his slot's recommended value after they selected the Howard Junior College product in the sixth round of the 2014 Draft. He pitched to mixed results out of the bullpen during his first taste of Double-A in his second full season but made progress in his return to the level in 2017, turning in 24 strong starts for Bowie en route to Eastern League mid-season All-Star honors as well as a trip to the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game in July. The Orioles ultimately rewarded Scott with a September callup, allowing the hard-throwing lefty to get his feet wet in the big leagues with a pair of relief appearances.

Scott's elite fastball gives him closer potential, as he'll routinely hit triple digits while sitting comfortably at 97-99 mph. His low-90s slider has improved to where it's an above-average pitch, and its combination of sheer velocity and late break helps Scott pile up whiffs on both sides of the plate. His changeup represents a distant third pitch, one he threw sparingly even when working as a starter in 2017. The Orioles have worked with Scott to simplify his delivery to improve his strike-throwing ability, though realistically, his control might never be better than below average.

With his big fastball from the left side and a knack for missing bats and avoiding barrels, Scott possesses obvious upside as a late-inning reliever. The Orioles held him to a strict three-inning limit as a starter in 2017, believing that the extra reps would yield better control and improved durability, and it wouldn't be a surprise if they managed his workload similarly in 2018. That said, Scott must make serious gains with both his control and command to avoid a permanent move to the bullpen.
